(Warrensburg, MO) – As temperatures heat up, so does the racing at Central Missouri Speedway (CMS). The championship point’s races in four divisions, including the ‘mighty’ modifieds, ULMA late models, street stocks, and b-modifieds continues this weekend. Last week, the feature events produced two new drivers going to Waterloo Storage Products Victory Lane. This weekend, the track plans to have a special “Christmas in July” collection as fans are asked to bring Christmas decorations to donate to the recent storm victims, who not only lost personal belongings but their holiday décor. Also, CMS is looking for “Arts & Crafts” related vendors to setup on the front side of the speedway to sell or display their products. If interested, please call Susan Walls at 816-229-1338 for an opportunity to display your products in a new and exciting setting.
Last weekend in the modified division, Grandview driver Austin Siebert claimed his first-ever CMS victory with a powerful run. Terry Schultz from Sedalia is the current point leader after recording a solid second place running last weekend. Behind Schultz in the points are Jason Bodenhamer, Jason Thompson, Dean Wille, and Chad Lyle.
The ULMA late model division is led by the defending CMS track champion and current ULMA over all point’s leader, Jason Bodenhamer of Centerview. His brother-in-law, Brett Wood from Warrensburg is just 40 points back keeping the pressure on with another solid second place finish last weekend. Jon Binning, another Warrensburg driver, is currently third in the standings one spot ahead of Kevin Coyne from Kingsville and Chad Clancy of Smithville, rounding out the top five.
Brian Ziegler out of Bates City leads the Street Stock division with a strong grasp on the points lead but keep an eye on Michael Mullins from Kingsville who finished second last weekend; Mullins is just 28 markers behind Ziegler and continues to finish consistently in the top-five. Last week’s first-time feature winner, Nate Barnes from Kearney is in the third spot. Veteran drivers, Chad Eickleberry and Herb Dannar continue to rack up top-five finishes to stay in the hunt inside the top-five standings.
In the b-modified division, the dominator and young driver from Oak Grove, Jacob Ebert, grabbed his eighth feature win of the year. Ethan Isaacs from Bonner Springs, KS and Jason Billups out of Holt, MO continue to stay within striking distance of Ebert’s strong hold in this division. Issacs and Billups are producing top finishes to remain in the top-three but they need wins and finishes ahead of Ebert to climb the standings. Rounding out the top-five are Lucas Issacs, brother of Ethan from Bonner Springs and Independence driver, Nic Bennett, in this entertaining division of young and up and coming drivers.
Promoters Earl and Susan Walls gave direction last Saturday prior to racing action that any new drivers coming to race at CMS this season from last Saturday forward can now register for half price to compete at CMS for just $30. Each Saturday evening, pit gates open at 4:30 p.m. with grandstand admission gates opening at 5, hot laps at 7, and racing at 7:30.
